And so it begins.
The Carolina Hurricanes reassigned defenseman Jay Harrison to Albany today. Harrison played 10 games for the Hurricanes, scoring a goal and registering two assists while averaging about 12 minutes of ice time per game. He also accumulated 27 minutes of penalties.
The free agent acquisition cleared waivers this morning.
Tim Gleason has been cleared to play and will take his place. For now, Tim Conboy will assume the backup role with the blueliners in case anyone gets hurt.
In practice today, Gleason was paired with Joe Corvo, Joni Pitkanen was still with Aaron Ward, and Andrew Alberts was matched with Niclas Wallin.
